We have lived at our address for 20yrs and have had an existing drive to our home. We r landlocked so it is across the edge of neighbors land. It was here before we moved here and before the current landowner but thete is no easement recorded. He never liked it but never did anything. Now all of a sudden he is putting steel poles across our drive. Took a tractor and was making speed bumps in drive with the gravel we pay for. We have always maintained it. He doesn't use it. My husband got charfed with disorderly conduct for arguing and cussing when the law took his side. We need a legal easement but I don't know how.

I have a roommate in my apartment who is classified as a

Hello, I have a roommate in my apartment who is classified as a subtenant because he is not on the lease and pays me rent every month. I told him today that my other roommate and I have been talking and wanted to ask him to leave in thirty days. He claims that he has squatters rights and that I have no legal way to evict him from the property. He's only been living on the property for 5 months. I was wondering how accurate he is in me not being able to go to court after he neglects a thirty day notice given to him

I purchased 150 x 140 property in a small town in North

I purchased 150 x 140 property in a small town in North Dakota 2 years ago. I just had it surveyed last month. The neighbors garage is 10 ft., (he didn't have a survey done when he built the garage), onto my property. (The surveyor did the survey 3 times to make sure he was right.) I offered to sell the 10 feet to my neighbor but he says he's grandfathered in and can continue to use my property. I thought as a new property owner if I bought 150 x140 and it was registered at the court house as such, that I owned that much. Can you tell me if I have any right to my 10 feet or do I have to give it to him?Thank you, ***** ***** of North Dakota

I have been taking care of my neighbor's vacant lot adjacent

I have been taking care of my neighbor's vacant lot adjacent to my property (cutting lawn, trimming trees spring and fall clean-up etc...). Since my land has no parking, we have been using this area for guest parking without dispute since 1987. They have recently put up boundary's so that we cannot park on their property because they are upset due to several Summer parties this year where noise was load and many cars were packed into both of our properties. They stated that they were "Taking Back" their property. Do I have any recourse - I live in Massachusetts...?

I had a question about squatter's rights in (particularly

Hello,I had a question about squatter's rights in Virginia (particularly Fairfax county). I have been living at an apartment for 2 years and 3 months. My friend was the tenant and I paid rent / utility monthly during this time. He recently passed away after extended illness and his sister (who has power of attorney and lives in TX) wants me out of the unit ASAP. The property manager had mentioned to her that I could stay 7 days. Do I have any legal recourse in this instance to stay a few more weeks while I hunt for a new place to live? I have been paying the utilities so that is all current and up to date.Thanks for your time.Jessica W
